School Class Field Trip Information
Our field trips are geared towards preschool to 5th grade students. We offer a 45-minute educational tour at a real working farm featuring an authentic tipi at our gourd station and our miniature donkeys "Achilles" and "Flower" in our petting zoo.
The 45-minute, fun filled educational tour includes demonstrations on pumpkins, gourds and Indian corn. The children will learn how pumpkins are grown and about different sizes and colors of pumpkins. They will also get a history lesson on how the Native American Indians used gourds and Indian corn and how we use them today. The tour also includes a walk through the pumpkin patch to pick out a pie pumpkin, an ear of Indian corn, a gourd, a trip through the corn maze, and a trip through the petting zoo. The children will also receive a bag which will be handy for carrying their pumpkin, gourd, and Indian corn.
The cost of the school class tour is as follows:
Teachers (2 per class): Free
We also have an optional activity for the children to participate in. They can build a scarecrow for their class, school or home. All they have to do is pick out the clothes, stuff with straw and design the face. This is a popular activity for classes and the kids love to have a reminder of the fun they had at the pumpkin patch in their classroom for the Halloween / harvest season. The cost for this activity is as follows:

Thank you and we look forward to seeing you in the Pumpkin Patch. Please feel free to share this information with anyone that might be interested.
We will be open regardless of weather, so prepare your students.
This is an outside activity and students should come dressed for the day's weather. We will be walking on grass and fields which may be wet or muddy. We advise the children to bring a jacket and to wear tennis shoes or boots with socks. We do have large grassy areas if you are interested in staying for snack time or lunch time; however, they are outdoors so it is weather permitting.
The children will be allowed to touch the animals; however, there are no hand washing facilities. Please bring antibacterial wipes or antibacterial gel for the children to wash, especially before eating.
We have many students scheduled to visit. It is important that groups arrive on time. If you have schedule difficulties, call Callie Mazzotti at 303-536-4089 so we know you are running late.
